CASE No. 8:11-CV-287-T-26TGW.
August 12, 2011
This case was administratively closed by Order of March 18, 2011 (Doc. 10). United States District Judge Richard A. Lazzara has informed me that this case should be reopened and that the parties have consented to trial before a magistrate judge. However, it is appropriate to recuse myself from sitting as United States Magistrate Judge in this matter because my son is an attorney representing the plaintiffs. 28 U.S.C. 455(a).
It is, therefore, upon consideration
1. That the Clerk is DIRECTED to remove the administrative closure and REOPEN this case.
2. That the Clerk is DIRECTED to assign this case by random selection to another United States Magistrate Judge.
DONE and ORDERED at Tampa, Florida, this 11th day of August, 2011.
